Co-Parenting and Divorce Class

Divorce can have a devastating effect on children. If parents are unable to work together for the good of the child, he or she can suffer life-long problems.

Help for Divorcing Parents

In 2014, Oklahoma legislators passed HB2249 which requires parents who are divorcing for reasons of incompatibility and who have children under 18 to attend an educational program concerning the impact of divorce on children.

Family Builders Co-Parenting and Divorce meets the requirements for such a program as outlined in the bill.

Program Topics

  • Effects of family violence on children
  • Child behaviors and emotional states during and after divorce
